of the top tier rp candidates there at the very end of this contest say to me, personally, hey, i feel like i didn't get a fair deal from them. they were out there, basically in the tank for the other guy. >> but if you listen to the audio on washingtonpost.com, that conversation that k.t. mcfarland had with general petraeus, it is pretty stunning when you hear it. she didn't think it was a joke. she was taking it very, very seriously. she's a former high-ranking official in the defense department during the bush administration. >> that's right. and as you see in our piece, she went on fox news a couple of days later, after petraeus was tapped to head the cia and basically recounted much of what was said during that discussion. but at the same time as we're all talking about partisan media and so forth, keep in mind, you know, the prime-time pundits and anchors over at msnbc were over at the white house this afternoon, meeting with president obama on the administration's proposals for getting the fiscal cliff passed up on capitol hill. so, you know, i would say a lot of republicans who would
